Project Instructions

Open the ad page flat so you have the maximum length.

Measure and cut a triangle that is 1" at one end and goes to a point at the other end. (Download the pattern below.)

Starting at the wide end, roll the paper around the toothpick or skewer. Roll tightly, finishing with the point. Glue the point down to secure the bead.

Brush Glossy Accents™ on the bead to strengthen and give it shine.


The longer the paper, the fatter the bead as well as the more colorful the paper, the more colorful the bead!
